well enuff to punch a bear..



The brown bear next to Aidan is Norton..Some of u may have seen the ad on TV esp during the X'mas period..Norton is an interactive bear that can walk,run, giggle, talk, sleep and even snores. It's a birthday gift from gwynne koalababy.

Anyway..Aidan abhors him :P..Whenever Norton runs towards him, Aidan will lean back and try to avoid him and he'll give him this disgusted look..and when he has the opportunity, he'll go towards Norton and punch him in the nose several times..even when the bear is lying flat on the ground. Oh man..should I stop him from being so rough with Norton? Oh well, at least Norton's not real..

(Gwynne, I'm sure Aidan will warm up to Norton when he gets older hehe..)


eh..get away from me u ...!

*kabish*

Aidan's Mike Tyson look..

==========================

For a boy who is supposed to be sick with bronchitis, he certainly doesn't behave like one. He tears around the house in superspeed, he eats like a pig, drinks like a cow..(hm..not sure whether i got the right animal but u get my drift), he even enjoys taking his medicine..opening his mouth wide open each time he sees the meds syringe coming towards him..

Anyway, he's definitely on the mend .. still phlegmy and coughing a li' but much lesser compared to Monday. But unfortunately, I am not in too good a shape.I have a runny nose , sorethroat and slight cough.. Guess Aidan's virus was mighty contagious and what made it tougher was having to keep up with him in my condition..I couldn't take my meds becuz it made me drowsy and if i happened to konk out, Aidan would have a field day destroying everything in the house. Fortunately, my in-laws were ard at times to look after him so that I could get some rest. If not, i'll be totally zombiefied already.

Mong meganmacy is back in Singapore already and I'm supposed to meet her for dinner and adjourn to a pub later in the evening..Hope that I'll improve a li' so that I can make it for dinner but i doubt i'll be able go hiao with her..

Oh..here's something she bought from Hong Kong for the li' bugger.. Cool eh! The sleeves when reversed is the same color as the pants. I love it coz it's pretty unique..not like the 'waiter' chinese costumes u see ard in Chinatown..


Nice eh!! Can't wait to see how it looks on Aidan..

==========================

New Videos
Oh it's been a while since I showed any videos of Aidan..Here's 2 that I'd captured today...
a) Introduced Hi5 to the li' one recently and he's in love with them totally..especially when they sing and dance. Aidan is dancing to the intro music here (he's actually looking for piggy at the end of the clip..) click here.
b) Aidan with his mouth open wide going 'ah' as he is given a snack...click here
==========================

n coz i'm so boliao..
As some of u may already know, I'm rather into pageants (not that i ever wanna take part init)..especially the ones held in Hong Kong.I guess it's becuz I'm such a TVB serial addict and most of the popular actors in the station were contestants from either Miss HK or Miss Chinese International..Also, I tend to prefer such contests because Singapore does have a fair chance in winning since it's a pageant for chinese women..So year after year, I'll try to follow the contests closely and 'coz it isn't shown on our terrestrial channels, I always have to rely on the internet..At least this year, Miss Chinese International will be shown on Ch48 which I subscribe to..

I wonder why our local television channels aren't interested in the rights for Miss Chinese International (like what they do for Miss Universe)..I mean it is definitely a better stepping stone towards the entertainment/tv industry in HK [that is provided their cantonese is proficient i guess] compared to being in Miss U or Miss World..I mean, most of the pageant queens and runner-ups I've seen seemed to wanna be in showbiz (well cept for this lady lawyer who probably knows she'll get paid peanuts if she switched lines). The 2 most popular of MCI are Christy Chung and Michelle Reis..and others areSonja Kwok, Bernice Liu, Michelle Ye just to name a few..(only those who watches TVB dramas will know who they are :P)

Actually, there is a Singaporean 'queen' who managed to break into the HK industry that many don't really know of..No, not Paulyn (aka Alien) Sun who has gotten pretty infamous ..Her name is Eileen Yeowand she was a Miss Singapore Universe 1991..Apparently, she gotten to know Anita Yuen (who was Miss HK when she was Miss Singapore) well and tru the encouragement of the latter, she flew to HK and managed to get into TVB after a few auditions.. She's not the leads in the TVB dramas but her roles are actually quite numerous and she has made quite an impression with the viewers with her fine acting. I'm just wondering if she can make it, why can't others? Why stick to deplorable Mediacorp or Mediaworks?

Ok..and back to the real reason why I'm writing this..Why is Singapore's standard in beauty pageant getting worse??? Oh man...look at this year's contestants for MCI from the various countries and look at Singapore's entrant(top right)..*sigh* She is seriously the worst looking of the lot..And during their talent contest, where the other contestants showed their skills (one played the flute, another the piano, some did some gungfu thingy and a few danced pretty professionally (salsa, ballet, chinese dance). Our Miss Singapore chose to do a song-dance item where she wore a leopard prints costume and sang while wriggling a hoola hoop around her waist.. yeecks....how tacky!! There were a few pageant forums that actually questioned how did she ever became queen and some even queried whether Singapore girls are generally that ugly..*sigh*..

Anyway, i guess i better stop being so critical...but seriously, the girls in Singapore are far better-looking than those people they chose to represent us..Yeah i know ..beauty contests are superficial and demeaning etc etc..but I so lurrvve to watch them and oogle at the girls.. I think I was probably was a DOM in my previous incarnation..

OMG the singapore one is indeed *puke* gross. It's really sad you know, since there's plenty of pretty girls in singapore!

exactly!! There are loads of better looking girls in Singapore but those that represent our island are usually a crappy bunch bleah. I guess the goodlooking girls need not enter a pageant to boost their ego but I though a 20k prize would be good enuff to entice most of them right (well, better than mediacorp's 10k anyway)

I love Aidan's dancing video, he is so adorable!

meganmacy has got great taste, I am sure Aidan will look spiffy in it.

Is it a live broadcast on Ch 48 for the MCI pageant? I like watching HK's beauty pageants too and I follow their gossips quite closely too, so bo liao. My favourite is Miss Vancouver, may be I am biased, but this year's is not as good looking. Sonija Kwok from SFU, right?

Jan. 15th, 2004 11:22 pm (UTC)
yeah..I think it's live..It's on the 17 Jan at 8.35pm. Lemme know if u want me to record it :)

Hah..i got a kaki in u then! I love scouring tru all the pagaent sites and checkin out the participants. I think Linda from Vancouver is quite sweet but she's not as good as the previous year like Bernice and Diana .Yeah..Sonija is from SFU but I think most of the queens tend to be from UBC. I think for this year, the strong ones are from LA and HK and Malaysia..Toronto's not bad too..

the singapore contestant really does not represent well the best girls in Singapore...

other representatives are so beautiful, I like the one from LA, very elegant and refined...

the sporean contestant look like a cow :P..

LA is a fav with the HK media,to the point upstaging their local contestant..They say she looks like the jap actress Takako Tokiwa..I think since she has expressed an interest in the entertainment industry, she will stand a high chance in gettin the crown..:P

ahaha maybe I should've gotten him the lighter coloured one. Either that, or Norton has that cross-eyed, "asking for it" look. Or did he get cross-eyed after Aidan punched him? kekeke =P

Jan. 16th, 2004 04:48 am (UTC)
heh mebbe u are right..the other few furry bears which i have (same color as Norton actually) also kena same treatment from Aidan altho i swear he doesnt punch them as hard..I think he associate lighter colors with his piggy so he treats them better (like the beige bear).:P

Hmmm...I see that Aidan is still very drippy - 4th pic. Remind me to show you some tricks the next time I see you to stop his drippy saliva. And noooo..not some old wives tales. Taught by Royce's therapist and it worked! Even got him to wean off his pacifier.

My eyes! My eyes!!!!!! *gouge them out*

Heh. Miss Montreal looks like she kena electrocuted, man... And Miss Singapore... Sigh.

Anyway Singapore contestants always CMI, dunno why. Still remember one Miss Universe year, you know all the contestants would say "I'm Miss Canada from VANCOUVER!!" and the Singapore contestant said "I'm Miss Singapore from CHANGI!!" *rolleyes*

Aidan reallllly dislikes bears eh. Hehe. Love the first suspicious looking pic...

ooh man if looks could kill!! Aidan sure doesn't take too kindly to poor Norton :( oh well I guess in due time like you say Aidan will play with him more often.

I love the outfit!! I think he'll look so sharp wearing it on Chinese New Year, with such nice bright colors :D

The video of him dancing along to the song cracks me up!!! its so cute when he's clapping his hands and wiggling his whole body to the beat :)

And The "Ah" video is cute too I'm sure he'll be doing that a lot :)

Glad that Aidan is on the road of recovery before CNY :) Hope that you won't suffer too much aftermath.

it's really humorous the way you describe how he treated Norton. I felt that he must have felt 'threatened' by Norton, and wondering why there's such a funny creature walking around in his territory and chose to protect it ;-)
And for goodness sake, please dun get Aidan a pet...ha..ha..

I'm really amazed by your knowledge of beauty paegeants. I only follow the HK pageants during the late 80s to early 90s. Those were the prime of the HK beauty queens who produced great talents - Maggie Cheung, Anita Yuen etc. Now I can't be bothered because the contestants seem to be so-so, and I dun waste time following S'pore pageants because the winners were quite forgetable.

hehe guess what..my dear hub is sick now hehe..Aidan's virus is indeed strong.

And for goodness sake, please dun get Aidan a pet...ha..ha..

LOL!!! I won't i won't..I dun think the pet will survive ..

I have to agree that the prime of HK pagaent was during the yesteryears of Maggie Cheung and Anita Yuen..actually surprisingly, the Miss Singapore Chinatown of those years actually did pretty well too then (one beat Anita Yuen in MCI)..but like what i said, i still 'watch' the Miss Hk regularly becuz many of them (including the contestants) end up as TVB actors (eg. Chermaine Sheh, Kenix Kwok, the other Maggie Cheung, Ada Choi just to name a few)..

Actually I thought last year's Miss Universe wasn't that bad..at least it wasn't as bad as some of the other years (Jamie Teo - a beauty queen???eeks)..

The videos are so nice, you can keep a lookout if any baby food need advertisement on TV, Aidan will look very convincing that the food is delicious!!!

I lend you the Chinese hat for Aidan on 24th Jan, just to take the tons and tons of photos....

Jan. 16th, 2004 05:13 pm (UTC)
heh hubby n I were sayin that we should look out for baby-eating contest. I'm sure aidan will get the top spots! Oh we thought of those eating advert too. I mean..he eats (almost) everything with a gusto (he rejected some food before tho but v rare)..So we always say..if he really dislike somethin, it's probably quite bland (sorry June :P)..

Can can..we mus take pics of them in their chinese garbs all together :))

Was reading the part about how your in-laws were around to help when you were also sick and looking after Aidan...

suddenly feel my family's all very far away and wondering if We'll be able to cope when the time comes.*worried*

Jan. 17th, 2004 05:02 pm (UTC)
Yes i'm really blessed to have their support. They have been great..

I think it's always harder for couples like u with no parental support...I think that's the reason why post-natal depression is more common in the western countries simply becuz logistically wise, it's not easy for parents/family members to meet up and help out..And also, unless in Singapore, hired help (maids) are not easy to get too.Eg. Having a confinement nanny (that stay-in and help out with the child during the 1st month after child is born) are v common practice in S'pore but prob not in the US..

But like what u said..I'm sure u'll be able to handle it when the times come..(what abt ur hub's family then?)
